Indeed.

Let's hope that wiser heads ultimately prevail.

What is your source? Not trying to pick on you, I just hope that you misunderstood. It would unspeakably asinine to build it that way!

No doubt that reconstruction of Dresden's old town deserve applause.
But in my opinion it's too technologically advanced and, as a consequence,
the place lacks charm and character.
I had stayed for some days in one of the old/new aparthotels by Neumark. Some apparently separate buildings are in fact internally connected constructions with one huge car park under. All high-tech, sterile, air-conditioned and soulless. The whole area, although looks fine, has no atmosphere if you compare it with almost totally reconstructed old towns of Gdansk/Danzig, Wroclaw/Breslau, Warsaw (incl. King's Tract) in Poland.
I think that Dresden has to employ some smart urban animators who could make the place more lively.

A destruição de Dresden em 1945 foi um crime contra a humanidade. Que maravilha a reconstrução dessa cidade belíssima.

It will take a while... there's still a lot to be rebuilt in the Neumarkt area.

They didn't reconstruct it especially for you. Give it time. The examples you give have been reconstructed almost 40 years ago. Therefore you now experience the soul there. Somebody who has visited those places when they just finished the job there would have said the same as you do now about Dresden!
Dresden is going to be ready for the next couple of hundred years so don't judge so quickly!

The differences to the Polish reconstructions are easily explained. In Commie times these reconstructions were planned as residential quarters, and the costs were paid by the general public. And at least Warsaw was rebuilt brick by brick (with building material often from other cities), which simply isn't possible in a democracy and in capitalism.

I think it is just normal that reconstructions 60 years after the war go otherwise according to these ones immediately after the war. It will take time to make this quarters a center of urban live in Dresden again.

A while ago (more than a year) on this thread there were some posts about the restoration of the courtyard of the Schloss. It looked like it was coming along very well. Has it been completed? Does anyone have any pictures of all the sgraffito decoration? Thanks!

A great job! I haven't read the whole thread because it's huge, but can somebody tell me who were the architects involved in this reconstruction? .. and why is this thread tagged under "fake buildings" - if you look at the tags below?

Interesting Page here

It seems the destruction of the Altstadt began well before 1945:

There are little highlighted links to click on. Here is one of them:

I think it is a small price to pay. The bigger issue is functionality and people will hardly use a building that is not functional.
